Chick in Salad

In November, I'm going to be teaching a class at my guild's retreat ... on making chickens and other fowl. There's already a bunch of samples made that I showed HERE. Then I thought the other day that the birds needed a 'home' to live in. Here's the chick-in Salad, with bacon. The two fabric slices of bread to the right there are going to be part of a chick-in club sandwich. I had some fabric that made great cheese slices, and lettuce, and more bacon, of course. I'll finish that in a couple of days. :) I'm debating on how much of the chicken I want showing between the bread - you think just the beak and eyes, or should I make a chicken with feet to poke out too?

As I was sewing, Libby comes to join me on the couch. She really wanted to nap, but I couldn't resist teasing her with a strip of selvedge. Isn't that a long-suffering, p.o.'ed look she's giving me?

She has to put up with a lot, as a quilter's cat, doesn't she? I think it's payback for all the times she dashes through the block bits I've laid out, scattering them all over the table and floor before I can get them sewn up.

Chesty's famous from running around the room anytime I set blocks out on the floor. It was nice when I had space for the design wall in the apartment when we first moved to Minneapolis but no wall space here in the townhouse so I'm back to using the floor.

You need to send that picture of your cat to Cute Overload. The Chick-n-salad is brilliant!

Gosh the bread looks really edible! No feet for me please.

What a helper you have. Tigger "helped" me this morning by climbing into my lap to help my hand quilt my Hexagon Quilt. He was really irked that I kept wiggling the quilt. ;)

And the best to you and Libby.


P.S. - You chick is so cute just the way he is. What a clever quilter you are.
